Summary

A sound, appropriately designed and well maintained roof is an essential feature of any building. The roof is key to the structural integrity and weatherproofing of a building. Exposed to the sun, snow, wind and rain, it must be kept in good condition in order to prevent the ingress of moisture which can cause damage to rafters, floors, walls and the structure of a building.

A workplace should have a planned maintenance schedule in place which prevents roof problems and keeps the roof in watertight condition. The schedule should include the maintenance of any chimneys or flues and of gutters and downpipes.
